|Gail Ghetia Bellamy--the author of the Cleveland Memories series--will talk about the city's past this Monday at Mentor Library's Main Branch.|
"While nostalgia books have an element of history, they also encompass popular culture and even a bit of memoir," she told the Heights Libraries when they interviewed her. "Also, as an author, writing nostalgia books is a wonderful experience because people are so warm and enthusiastic when they’re sharing their own memories."
Bellamy will bring her memories, warmth and enthusiasm with her during her free author talk Monday evening at Mentor Library's Main Branch.
She'll share photos and stories from Cleveland's past and take us on a tour of the city's yesteryear.
Bellamy is a renaissance woman—a poet, scholar, author and magazine editor who is a certified culinary professional with her doctorate degree in creative writing. Her writing, which includes everything from poetry to journalism, has been published in books, anthologies and magazines.
In addition to sharing her stories and memories, Bellamy will also be signing books after her talk Monday.
